PreCollege Trip Guide

As detailed in the Conduct Code, residential students are not allowed to leave campus with non-Pre-College personnel during the program unless their parent or guardian has previously spoken with Pre-College staff and completed an Off-Campus Non-Emory Travel Permission Form. We discourage students from leaving campus to visit friends and relatives during the program.  Students will get the most out of the Emory Pre-College Program when they remain fully engaged with their peers and the activities that we have planned.


If a student has a friend or family member in the Atlanta area that they would like to visit, we encourage them to plan a visit before or after the Pre-College Program.  Alternately, the friend or relative may plan to meet the student for a meal at one of the on-campus dining halls or at one of the many restaurants in Emory Village.  No additional paperwork is required for these on-campus visits.

If a student must leave campus with a family friend or relative, the Off-Campus Non-Emory Travel Permission Form must be returned to Residence Life personnel on Sunday at the Pre-College Session Check-In for any and all proposed off-campus travel. Upon departure and return from campus, students must check in/out with the RA on-call. 


Check- in Dates:

Session A - June 16

Session B - June 30

Session C - July 14
